Caitlin Clark

Group Section Editor - Culture

A word from your (potential) manager // I'm Caitlin - the Group Section Editor for Culture at The National Student. Originally from Herefordshire, I moved to London to pursue an undergraduate degree in African Language and Culture from SOAS. I lived in London for 6 years and moved to Bristol at the end of last year. I'm a freelance writer, specialising in Music and Lifestyle features across publications including BBC Three, Bristol/London in Stereo, GigList, God Is In The TV and SheBOPS. I love long-form features, hoarding magazines, investigating subcultures and forgotten genres of music in obscure places and supporting underrepresented voices.
